As you can tell by the squinting eyes in these pictures, the weather was almost unbearable at the weekend. And I need to desperately get an urgent fringe cut. Taking inspiration from a shaggy dog is never a good look. I wore this to wander around East London yesterday with my mum mooching at Petticoat Lane along the way. Despite it being payday I didn't manage to splash my cash on anything. Isn't that always the way? Instead we gorged ourselves on an amazing fish finger sandwich from Bill's. Perfect Sunday right there!

Now if only I could win the lottery and buy a house like this... Fingers crossed!

Whitecross Street Market

I very rarely spend much time in the city at the weekend - it's always so quiet and not much really goes on. It looks like a ghost town when you wander down the streets on a Saturday with hardly anyone around you and all the the shops are closed. So when I found out Whitecross Market was open for one weekend only I made the journey into town. Usually the market is only enjoyed by booted and suited city workers during the working week.

I met up with Lily, Hannah and Lauren armed with a few cheeky cans of Pimms in my bag and we set up shop on a kerb in front of the music canopy. The sun was out in force and we put the world to rights whilst being serenaded by a variety of singers. When my belly started to grumble we had a little wander to see what took our fancy. I opted for a burger - is it ever anything else? - stuffed with cheese and bacon finished off with a red velvet cupcake and a cake pop thrown in for the craic.

After the market packed up shop at 6pm, we wandered down to the lakes at the Barbican to bask in the sun for a few more hours. It was such a perfect way to spend a Saturday and i'll be sure to try and make more of an effort to enjoy the city more often.

We sat and made a list of all the things that we had

Black sheer vest top: Topshop (similar)
Mint quilted midi skirt: ASOS (similar)
Black over the body chain handle bag: Zara (similar)
Black faux suede chunky heeled sandals: Primark (similar)

If I could wear this skirt 24/7 I would. It's my favourite midi skirt at the minute. For the moment until I have an affair with another one come payday. I love the unusual quilted material and the gorgeous vibrant colour. Well and truly a statement piece. As all good midi skirts should be! These shoes weren't perhaps the most sensible shoes to wander around London doing a photoshoot for work. But no pain no gain. Or something like that...
